Toews Posted September 26, 2019 Share Posted September 26, 2019 (edited) Quote BERGEVIN AND JONATHAN DROUIN RESPOND TO SPORTSNET REPORT After Wednesday night’s game, we reported that an Eastern Conference executive confirmed that Drouin’s name “is definitely out there.” When Bergevin was asked about that on Thursday, he quipped: “I don’t know where (those reports) come from. Most of those reports are from somebody in his basement in Toronto, so I don’t pay attention to that to be honest with you.” When Drouin was asked about it, he said it wasn’t his place to comment. “I don’t have a take on it,” he added. “I’ll let you guys tweet about it and talk about it. That’s your job, it’s not mine.” What Drouin did say is that he believes he’s getting his timing back and that his game is going in the right direction. The 24-year-old closed out last season with just one goal in his last 26 games and has only recorded one assist while dressing in four of the six pre-season games the Canadiens have played. When asked to evaluate Drouin’s camp, Bergevin said, “I expect more, the coaches expect more, and I think Jo does too.” “He’s a skilled player, he has talent, he has a lot of attributes, and I know last year he had a tough finish,” Bergevin added. “He had a good summer. Training camp is training camp. I mean he’s not the only one who’s not up to par right now.” https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/canadiens-notebook-bergevin-drouin-respond-trade-talks-report/ Bergevin denies it but this is the same guy that denied that Subban was on the block, filed for tampering charges against JB, then traded him a few days later. I say he is a weasel whose word cannot be trusted. Drouin should probably start packing his $&!#.
